Hey everyone! So I was curious, instead of just asking what type of music or band or whatever that you like, I was wondering what you all listen to to make you happy whenever you've had a sucky day or are just feeling sad for whatever reason.
Right now for me I've been listening to Madeleine Peyroux's album Careless Love. I seriously love every song on there. Something about it just puts me in a good mood and calms me down.
Now it's your turn... you can list a partiular song you like, or an artist, or your favorite album. Doesn't matter. :D
anything he does makes me happy.
Then there are those times when I think about my upcoming wedding and I'll listen to the music we're going to play at our ceremony. I'll be walking down the aisle to a local band's song Take (MySpace.com/ResonantSoul) and whenever I bust out my wedding plans, I play that CD.
If I'm in a silly mood and need some pep, bring on the teeny bopper music. Backstreet Boys, other girl bands and boy bands and all that music that was so cool in the nineties until everyone became embarassed of it. :D I can't sit still in my chair when I've got the Black and Blue CD playing.
And if I'm cleaning and need to get the happy energy to do a decent job, I play Ayumi Hamasaki, BoA, Pierrot, and some Dir en Grey songs. I like a lot of JRock and JPop music. It's so peppy, it always perks me up.
If I'm all ho-hum and depressed and need to be happy, Dresden Dolls. The Jeep Song is so catchy. :D
